Getting There

Disembark and hike straight up the rocky drainage for approximately 15 minutes. The strenuous hike involves a small amount of scrambling but is over soon enough.

Follow the right branch when the trail forks near the base of the cliff. The first wall is the Bishop. A vertical red face contains three sport routes. From left to right these routes are: Flogging the Bishop, Heelium, and Sacramental Whining.
